“Perfect oceanfront location!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Wonderful oceanfront condo with everything we needed for a fun, active, and restful stay. Aloha Condos did a great job to ensure that our arrival, stay, and departure were all done with ease. Convenient to the KTA grocery store and other necessities, which are just up the hill. Overall club and this particular unit clean and well maintained. Tennis courts exceptional. View perfect. The condo itself was well appointed; the master bedroom was immediately off the lanai, making it perfect for being lulled to sleep by the ocean waves, but the mattress could be changed out for a more uniform, firm one. All in all, it was a perfect oceanfront location, making for a nice week-long stay to celebrate our twentieth anniversary.

We enjoyed staying at #178 because of the quiet location and sitting on the lanai watching the boats and dolphins go by! It had all the amenities we needed, big enough for the 2 couples and the lovely big pool was very refreshing. We started the day snorkeling with the sea turtles and a multitude of tropical fish at the beach 10 minute walk away. Marvelous! The shopping mall was an easy drive and we were glad we were not in the main town area of Kailua Kona.

These condos are very centrally located for fun on the Western side of the BigIsland. We loved the nearby beaches, snorkeling with SeaQuest and dining at Bubba Gumps. We stayed in Unit # I -203 which very nicely furnished and stocked.The fans provided plenty of cool air at night. The ocean view on the lanai was perfect and the sunset superb. It is within reasonable distance to the downtown area, coffee plantations and open air marketplaces as well as Target and Walmart.

Room Tip: The second floor is better because feral cats and bugs will not wander on the lanai.Choose the ocean...

We stayed in Unit # 1-102..this condo was over the top. It had everything from boogie boards to snorkel gear to beach chairs. Completely stocked with everything you could possible need. Beautifully decorated and literally right on the ocean's edge. The property itself was beautifully landscaped, quiet and easy to get to. The owner was very helpful, providing us with detailed directions for arrival and departure. I do not recommend anything very often, but you can't go wrong with this unit. There is no air conditioning, but there are ceiling fans and floor fans in every room...we never had a problem with being too warm. There is also a BBQ area...very handy, we ate on the lanai every night and enjoyed the view. Sunsets were awesome! Can't wait to return and we will defini
tely book this unit!

Room Tip: Book Condo 1-102

It was near 90, humidity near 80 %, it was unbearable. The rooms were beautifully appointed but who cares if you can't sleep because it's so hot. We were staying with the Royal Aloha Vacation Club, don't know how they can ask their members to endure the sauna.

Room Tip: Some condos may have air conditioning, make sure to check!

Stayed in October. The grounds look lovely, but inside the units it's a different story. Stayed with my brother who has a Royal Aloha timeshare. When we checked in the condition of the office was our first clue. It was dirty cluttered and doubled as a storage room for the cleaning supplies. We were slapped with an "occupancy tax" in addition to the already paid booking and annual dues. We have stayed other places in Kona and never been charged this type of tax.
Our two bedroom unit was on the ground floor. There is no central air conditioning. Each bedroom had a floor A/C unit. There were warnings every where to turn off the units if we left the room for mor than ten minutes. The temperature outside was in the upper 80's and very humid. Our unit never cooled down. The bathroom had a very strong mildew odor in it. When we told the management they left us a bottle of Clorox spray and some old washcloths.
Two times when we returned to the unit our room a/c units had been turned off by the management and a "naughty note" left in our room warning us to turn off the fans and a/c.
I used the outside shower near the pool after a scuba dive. I left my dive mask there. When I returned it was gone. The next morning I inquired about it to see if it had been turned in. The guy in the pool office looked for it but told me that another lady had a lot of her things go missing the week before. Not comforting!
I could go on and on with other reasons why Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club is not a place that should even still be open as a timeshare resort. However, I don't want to waste anymore of my lifetime dealing with this place.
Just don't go there!

We had 6 nights at townhome 2. It was great. The sound of the ocean so close. We found everything we needed in the condo which is beautiful. The location is nice as well.
It was a very nice stay and we will consider comming here again.
